Over the years, documentation requirements have increased dramatically for first responders. That means more typing. But the need for timeliness, thoroughness and accuracy hasn’t changed. Dragon Speech Recognition Solutions bring the power of automation to creating reports, documents, forms and emails. Whether at the desktop or on the road, first responders can use simple voice commands to speed through the paperwork.

With Dragon, officers & detectives can dictate reports and even use simple voice commands to complete license plate look-up, speed through NCIC checks, and even expedite primary booking reports. Fire officials and personnel can use Dragon to dictate reports, research and write reports on hazardous materials, response programs, and more.


Fast, Accurate Dictation
Dragon NaturallySpeaking is the ideal solution for busy public safety officers who want to work faster and smarter. They can dictate naturally to create documents, reports, email and more - three times faster than typing - with up to 99% recognition accuracy right out of the gate. 

Works with Virtually Any Windows Application
Officers can use their voice to dictate, edit, and control applications like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Outlook, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and more. Dragon also works with many Windows-based industry-specific software programs to deliver even greater productivity gains.

Control Your Computer by Voice
Public safety professionals can use simple voice commands to create files, send email, open and close programs, save and convert documents, and search the Web or their desktop for information and resources faster than ever before.

Anywhere, Anytime Dictation Capabilities
Dragon lets officers dictate notes directly into their laptops with a noise-cancelling or wireless microphone. Or they can dictate notes into a digital voice recorder while the information is still fresh in their minds. Dragon will automatically transcribe the audio files of their voice when they connect to their PC.

Section 508 Certified
Dragon Professional can help public safety organizations meet their disability management needs because it's Section 508 certified. Whether employees are permanently disabled or just in temporary rehabilitation, Dragon Professional can keep everyone on the job. Plus, by using voice to control the PC and create documents, officers reduce their risk of developing repetitive strain injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome


Tennessee Police Sergeant:
"I discovered that this exciting career came with a tremendous amount of PAPERWORK!" Through the years, I continued to drown in the ocean of very detailed reports. Unlike those television detectives, the true life detectives must submit their investigations in report fashion. Dragon allowed me to dictate reports and finally begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel."

Lee Mandell:
"I am a federal investigator and must file reports and summaries for each investigation. I have been using Dragon NaturallySpeaking for over seven years and the time this software saves me is incalculable and allows me to accomplish a great deal more work than if I had to type the reports by hand. My vocabulary is updated as I use Dragon, and it continues to evolve. I am far more productive as a result of this product."

Bob Brown:
"I am a private investigator and found Dragon to be very helpful in typing my case reports. I have been using Dragon for the past six years renewing every year to upgrade. In July of 2006 I had a stroke and had to have triple bypass surgery. As a result of this stroke I have lost pretty much the use of my right hand and had to quit taking statements for my clients and their attorneys. Thank God for your speaking program I am now able to record statements and translate them into a computerized report utilizing my Dragon program."

"I work for a police department in Colorado. In one particular case, officers had been called to a house where several family members had been murdered and the suspect was still on-scene. The suspect was taken into custody and brought to the police department. I needed to get an arrest warrant and search warrant done as quickly as possible. I had multiple officers to interview regarding the case and had officers waiting on-scene to go into the house on a search. Knowing that I needed to get this done quickly, I turned on Dragon NaturallySpeaking and did the interviews at my desk. As the officers answered my questions, I repeated what they said directly into the microphone, which then typed it quickly into the warrant. Dragon NaturallySpeaking helped me get the job done in half the time and helped get the suspect quickly to jail and the search warrant quickly signed and evidence collected."

A student in our summer program was struggling with his writing; rushing to get out his thoughts and skipping words he couldn’t spell... After training on Dragon for about an hour and 15 minutes, this student was able to complete a high-quality, six-page paper on Helen Keller in a single evening.
